    I know someone makes it but I can't find the damn thing.

    I'm looking for a front sling attachment that wraps around the handguard like on most 3 point slings.

    Anyone know who makes it?

    I suppose I could replace that plastic clip with a d ring.

    FWIW, there is (or was) plans on ARFCOM a few years ago on how you could make those yourself with $5 worth of parts from Wallyworld.

    I don't know if it has to mount on the handguard but there are side mount sling swivels pretty readily available and I have a GGG thing that has a QD swivel mount on the left and a piece of rail on the right in case I ever put a light on it.

    I'm not really a fan of the FSB sling mounts but I suppose if one has a rail on the side that might kill two birds with one stone.
     
  9. You want one like this?

    How does the sling attach to the mount? or is it attached?

    I have slings, I just want a mount/attachment point. :o

    That would be tits. Pics? I don't want you to waste your time if it's not what I need. :o :bowdown:
     
  16. The plastic d-ring thing is sewn to a loop of fabric that's sewn to the loop that goes around the hand guard. It goes through the mount on the gun and then kind of locks in place when you cinch the velcro down for the part that goes around the hand guard.

    I just dug it out and only have the big velcro strap that circles the handguard, can't find the little nylon loop that fixes it to the sling mount. You could always fab one up though.
